Closing Keynote: Two Iconic Journalists Take the Stage

We’re thrilled to welcome Audie Cornish and Dr. Sanjay Gupta to PM22. In a fireside keynote with Erica Mandy (The NewsWorthy), the two acclaimed journalists will dig into the powerful impact of audio storytelling.

Audie Cornish is a CNN anchor and correspondent, who will soon be debuting a new podcast from CNN Audio. Over her two-decade career in journalism, she has co-hosted NPR’s flagship news program All Things Considered and won a Peabody Award. Her interview subjects have ranged from stars to political figures to literary icons, including Bruce Springsteen, former President Barack Obama and Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta is the chief medical correspondent for CNN and hosts the CNN Audio podcast Chasing Life. Since 2001, the multiple Emmy-award winning journalist and practicing neurosurgeon has played an integral role in the network’s reporting on health and medical news in the US and around the world.

Stay tuned for a lively talk with insights you won’t hear anywhere else. Erica Mandy, an award-winning broadcast journalist and podcaster, is the perfect captain for an unforgettable keynote.
